Images of a Big Island

Under Pressure!

The three images here are of a place called Talbot Bay, home of the famous Horizontal Waterfalls.
Geologically, this area is pretty interesting. Flying over and cruising around here, one can see evidence of the tremendous forces that were exerted upon this landscape millions of years ago that stagger belief.
The strata is tilted,bent and twisted on a scale that makes you feel pretty small in the scheme of things!

Add to this some of the largest tidal movements in the country and you have a landscape that really grabs your attention!

  2. Thanks Tony, Just around the corner there is the Horizontal Falls. Slack tide when I took the shot. Cloud and patchy light are what caught my eye!
